through congress? >> reporter: yeah. i think if you listen to the comments of joe biden he's saying we shouldn't let the perfect be the enemy of the good here. clearly he's envisioning a system where they could pass some of these things in separate measures. universal background checks definitely has a more likely chance of passing up on capitol hill than, say, the assault weapons ban. of course, some of the executive actions which will go into effect today include things like allowing the military -- the medical establishment of the federal government to study gun violence. that's something they've been prohibited to do before to advocate for gun violence. the president saying he's not asking them to advocate. he's just asking them to study the root causes and tabulate gun violence incidents so scientists can learn a little bit more about why some of these mass assaults happen and who it is who's doing them. >> the president's relationship is likely to grow a bit more contentious as a result of all this, eamon. what sort of impact can we expect on the debt ceiling negotiations? >> rep

, everybody. let me begin by thanks our vice president, joe biden. for your dedication, joe, to this issue. for bringing so many different voices to the table. because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisive one. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many. and obviously none have affected us more than a families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost. so we're grateful to all of you for taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. but we also heard from some unexpected people. in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today. grant frits, julia stokes, hannah zeha and tasia good. they're pretty representative of some of the messages i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. hennah, a third grader. you can go ahead and wave, hennah. that's you. hennah wrote, i feel terrible fo
